Nationalists march in Kiev ended battering the walls of Parliament – BBC News

Arranged in Kiev today nationalists march to mark the anniversary of the Ukrainian Insurgent Army ended carnage near the Verkhovna Rada. Injured 15 policemen and 11 soldiers the National Guard. Fifty people have been detained. And all because of the fact that Parliament has not complied with the radicals – not recognized Bandera fighters for Ukrainian independence and equated them with veterans of the Great Patriotic War.

Beat policeman chain backhand. Waste movement, scream, shot. For a moment, can not see anything – somewhere near a smoke bomb explodes. Thugs in masks covering the face, to the attack of the Verkhovna Rada, punching holes in the police cordon. The situation is out of control.

All who are in the building are locked, the police cordoned off Parliament, Brawls occur. Rada before a crowd of several thousand people. Over their heads – yellow Blakitnogo prapory, interspersed with black-CHervonnye. Radical party “Svoboda”, teaming up with “the right sector,” again demonstrate they – together – they are the power.

They gathered in the morning on Independence – a crowd of thousands, had already conquered the Independence Square, under the mantra of their leaders, ready for new challenges.

“Bandera – our hero, Cover – our holiday!” – Shouts from the podium Chairman of “Liberty” in the Verkhovna Rada Oleg Tyagnibok.

A short meeting – to warm up. And then, the beat of drums – to the main purpose. All of this column under the flags of “Freedom” and “right sector”, shouting Nazi slogans, moves Hrushevskoho to the Supreme Rada deputies voted today to the way you want the crowd.

Frightened members seem ready to sign Anything, as long as this – the last before the election, the session – ended without bloodshed. The crowd on the street, armed with cobblestones from the pavement, just in case, impatiently waiting. After all, she already promised today, to celebrate the anniversary of the Ukrainian Insurgent Army, Parliament adopts a law that equate UPA fighters – those who are side by side with the Nazis fought against the Soviet army, guerrillas, slaughtering Jews and Poles – to soldiers-liberators. The law, which will allow these “heroes of the nation” to call themselves veterans of the Great Patriotic War. For these veterans that gave their lives for their homeland – it’s like a slap.

But after the break, some of the people’s representatives to the meeting room is not got. Speaker Turchinov desperately trying to muster a quorum. But the deputies, apparently relaxed, having more in the morning to endorse the new defense minister, represented by the president. Two hundred and forty five votes – no doubt – for namesake and follower of Stepan Bandera – Stepan Poltorak. Former now, the commander of the National Guard, replacing camouflage military uniform, takes the oath. Not paying attention to what’s going on outside the window. And could – the new defense minister, as well as the former – of the police ranks. But now here these bolts struck the glass and miraculously no one was hooked in the building, headache related departments. Such trifles Minister is not exchanged.

In supporting the new defense minister praises members dispersed throughout the building. And not remembering the great accomplishments scheduled for day education UPA. Concerned about it only the leader of “Fatherland” Yulia Tymoshenko. She promised – in the new convocation of the first thing to go back to the question of the status of the fighters of the rebel army.

However, if the return to the parliament itself “Fatherland” with untried sniper korrektirovschitsey Savchenko, the first number – one more question. As radicals “Freedom” that methane in the parliamentary window Molotov cocktails. The votes may not be enough. An act of intimidation, with shooting and fighting – a farce for “patriotic” voters.

Quorum collect failed. The last session of the Verkhovna Rada of this convocation crumpled closed. Soldiers in masks, realizing that the deputies had already left the building through the back door, began to diverge. Apparently consoled by the fact that the president signed a decree on the eve of Poroshenko – transfer the celebration of the Day of Defender of Ukraine from February 23 to October 14 – day educational rebel army.

The results of the last meeting of the Verkhovna Rada of the convocation. Broken glass, the broken asphalt. Fifteen victims of law enforcement workers. Fifty arrested nationalists. Parliamentary elections enter final straight.


Monument to Marshal Zhukov will remain on Manezh Square – Moskovsky Komsomolets

Experts categorically rejected the idea of ​​moving it to Kaluga

Today, 20:46, Views: 20260

The Commission on monumental art at the Moscow City Duma considered a proposal to move the monument to Marshal Zhukov to Manezh Square in Kaluga. Criticizing the idea to the nines, the experts decided to leave everything as it is. In addition, members of the committee supported the proposal of the head of the Union of Journalists of Moscow, the chief editor of the newspaper “Moskovsky Komsomolets” Pavel Gusev to erect a monument to journalists killed in the editorial tasks.

& # x41F; & # x430; & # x43C; & # x44F; & # x442; & # x43D; & # x438; & # x43A; & # x43C; & # x430; & # x440; & # x448; & # x430; & # x43B; & # x443; & # x416 ; & # x443; & # x43A; & # x43E; & # x432; & # x443; & # x43E; & # x441; & # x442; & # x430; & # x43D; & # x435; & # x442; & # x441; & # x44F; & # x43D; & # x430; & # x41C; & # x430; & # x43D; & # x435; & # x436; & # x43D; & # x43E; & # x439; & # x43F ; & # x43B; & # x43E; & # x449; & # x430; & # x434; & # x438;

Perhaps Zhukov monument can be placed on the second place after Dzerzhinsky in the list of monuments that are the most frequently move. However, if such ideas usually throw up mentally unstable citizens, this time it was serious. With the postponement of an equestrian statue of the heart of Moscow to Kaluga, where he was born Zhukov, addressed the State Duma deputy chairman of the Russian Union of Veterans M.Moiseev. His letter was signed by the entire group of veterans, including generals and marshals.

Since then, as this initiative became known to the general public, the Moscow City Duma threw letters outraged citizens, who called the idea of ​​vandalism. However, the authors believe offer reasonable: in place of the empty pedestal they want to install a new equestrian statue, which, in their opinion, would be “more harmoniously with the historical ensemble Manezh Square».

to finance this castling ready Committee in memory of Marshal Zhukov . Moreover, as the representative of the Moscow Department of Culture Sergey Polovinkin, authors of the idea on the phone assured him that can arrange the transfer in one night without attracting public attention.

Arguments “against” found a whole lot. As the head of the commission Leo Lavrenov, no one saw not only a photo of the monument, but even the authors of this idea – at the commission meeting, they were not. In addition, the currently existing monument is by the decree of Boris Yeltsin and is federal property. The land on which it stands, is not only in the buffer zone of the Kremlin, but is under the protection of UNESCO.

It should be added that no one has discussed the idea with any relatives Zhukova, nor the authors of the monument itself, which is infringement of copyright. Incidentally, one of the authors of the horse sculpture – the national architect Yuri Grigoriev – attended the meeting of the committee.

– I think that the vandalism that occurs to the monuments in Ukraine should not sink to our country, to the capital – said Grigoriev. – Work with the sculptor Klykov was not easy. Remember Yeltsin asked him, “Where did you get such a horse?” And he said, “From the pictures.” Actually, we had planned to install the monument on Poklonnaya Hill, but when all was ready, the team arrived on Manezh Square. When we put it, it turned out that the hand points to Zhukov restaurant “Moscow”. I talked Klykova deploy figure, and Zhukov became indicate Tver.

– To us, the deputies asked other veterans with the requirement to keep this monument – said deputy MHD Yevgeny Gerasimov. – The monument – an integral part of the city, even if someone does not like the way the horse stands.

And yet, not all members of the committee were unanimous. Colonel Claus from the General Staff Academy, for example, the offense – he said that personally acquainted with General Moses, and would not draw an analogy between his idea and vandalism in the Ukraine. But the voice Morozova “against” was the only one.

But the President’s proposal Moscow Union of Journalists, the chief editor of the newspaper “Moskovsky Komsomolets” Pavel Gusev to erect a monument to fallen journalists members of the committee unanimously supported. As told Secretary of the Union of Journalists of Moscow Viktor Cheremuhin, in 2007-2008, the Government of Moscow has already approved a similar proposal, but the monument is still no. Meanwhile, since 1991, while on duty, killing more than 70 employees of the Moscow Media and more than 300 Russian. Only in the last six months in Ukraine killed 4 journalists.

The idea was supported by the monument, but the place is not yet determined. Initially offered a place on Gogol Boulevard, near the House of Journalists. But the Moscow government recently banned erect monuments on the boulevards.

In addition, the Commission supported the proposal of the Russian military-historical society about installing on the Sparrow Hills monument to Prince Vladimir Equal to the Apostles the Great, as well as the memorial sign in honor of the 70th anniversary of the Victory. Supported by experts and the idea to erect a monument to the composer Dmitri Shostakovich on the territory of the House of Music.

“Dracula” is worth all the “disappeared” – BBC

Box office Russia: “Dracula” left rivals out of business, “Graduation” did not become the second “Kiss!” And “Sunstroke” by Nikita Mikhalkov settled in the middle of the top ten.

Fantasy “Dracula” was almost never reached America, slightly behind David Fincher and “disappeared”. But he took heart in Russia. Over the weekend from 9 to 12 October kinoskazki of which became immortal vampire valahskogo Prince Vlad Tepes led the ranking of the domestic box office: according to the portal “Film Business Today ‘, this villain and bloodsucker earned 392 million rubles.

Fees first weekend allowed” Dracula “on the move to break into the top ten starts in 2014 in the domestic box office: The film moved occupied ninth place cartoon” Rio 2 “(376.8 million rubles. March) and almost caught up with the” Hercules “(397.5 million rubles. in July). Apparently, it will bring major international distribution profits picture Irish director Gary Shore and Luke Evans in the title role: the proceeds of the film in the United States and Canada still makes only $ 23 million, but in the rest of the world he has collected over the weekend $ 62.6 million.

In general, the 70 millionth “Dracula” is unlikely to have to worry about returning the money spent on production.

The gap between the revenue leader and the rest of the films in the top 5 so monstrous that it is difficult to rejoice in the national cinema, to get to second place – especially given the fact that almost all the news came out about the same number of theaters (a thousand copies each).

Russian comedy “Graduation” earned for the weekend of 79 million rubles.

directed by Vsevolod Brodsky and produced by Sergey Svetlakovym (he also co-wrote) was presented as a picture comedy “from the creators of” bitter, “but the success of this” Graduation “is not repeated. After a week and a half it will try to make himself gooseberries – 23 October will be released “Bitter 2».

The leader of last week, David Fincher’s thriller “Vanished” rolled right on third place, brought together for the last weekend of 77.8 million rubles. In Russia, the revenue picture is 255 million rubles., A worldwide picture of the missing wife starring Ben Affleck earned $ 140.3 million.

In the fourth place the family film ” Alexander and the terrible, horrible, bad, very bad day “, an adaptation of the eponymous children’s book became a bestseller 40 years ago in the United States.

In Russian literary source is almost unknown, but the picture on it earned 36 6 million rubles., beating one of the main prime weekend.

This is the title on the right is “Sunstroke” by Nikita Mikhalkov – the screen Bunin stories that are of interest the past two years, with the announcement of the start of the project. Mikhalkov began to “Sunstroke” in difficult conditions for themselves. In the spring of 2010 at the box office failed miserably the first part of “Burnt by the Sun 2″: “Anticipation” earned only 217 million rubles. with until the end and not the expanded budget (estimated at 33 million euros).

However, “Anticipation” at the start was the first in the ranking, but only due to failure of the theater other releases.

Released a year “Citadel” only consolidated failure – charges this amounted to only 42 million rubles. But even then, the rhetoric of the “great cinema” has been forgotten, and “Sunstroke” positioned very chamber and unambitious.

However, the premiere of his new film Mikhalkov organized on a large scale, in three places – in Serbia, Crimea and Moscow.

«Sunstroke” has earned over the weekend of 30 million rubles. and finished in fifth place in the ranking.

This is almost twice as much as it was in “The Citadel”, but the film came out and half the number of copies. In this budget, “Damages” is almost the same: according to “Film search”, it is $ 24 million (or nearly one billion rubles).

Almost 23 thousand. People have signed a petition demanding it be banned. Another two hundred activists blocked the display of the art center Barbican: it had to be canceled due to “security threat performers, spectators and staff».

Opponents performance blew the right of the “savages” even today is not to be victims, shouted that silent negros in the exhibition showcase only multiply racial stereotypes.

After their suffering sabotaged parody, and the atrocities of the exploiters turned into a torture attraction.

Supporters, however, rests on the adequacy of the chosen topic and language reminiscent of the Enlightenment and humanistic pathos project.

But the punitive policy of tolerance as a result still turned restrained story about becoming racism discredited show.

After the London stories bans and boycotts have become part of the program. It’s amazing that at the displays in Moscow did not show any Enteo Dmitry and his knights of morality.

«Exhibit B” Bailey was created as a project for export: in 2012, he toured the world festivals.

At first glance the performance really looks Disneyland with bloody historical lining in the form of stories killed, humiliated and insulted.

But in fact, moody colonial discourse combined with provocative program work the same way as the “Mouse” Art Spiegelman –

received the Pulitzer comics about the Holocaust: frivolous, masskultovy format does not discredit the content.

In this case, almost all the characters are looking at the viewer from the top down, as the hosts. This top-down view gives dostoevschinoy (“Yes you killed, Rodion Romanovich, You and killed-a”), birth trauma, which drags on itself not a victim and abuser.

a single character – Kirghiz, brother killed in Moscow expat solo exhibition brings out the philosophical and historical context of the back – in the social, our, Moscow.

Without it, the feeling of belonging to a global catastrophe ( whether the Holocaust or the pogroms in Biryulyovo) would not have arisen and performance would have remained an abstract story from pathetic reflection on humanity and equality.

The exhibition is held at the monosyllabic mechanism, which is actively used by all performers, defies the principle of ” in the presence of the artist, “Marina Abramovic –

game peepers. People turn into artifacts, actors – in the living dead, reproachfully staring into the eyes of unwary viewer.

That’s just it does not identify himself with any character victim nor oppressor with an invisible figure, but remains Gawker, voyeur. So opened cheapness imposed guilt, which in itself is questionable artistic experience. Through it emerges carnival wrong side of any conversation about violence to the high concentration of mournful sighs.

The viewer gets razglyadyvatelya position which has got even in the circus, where finger-pointing and gygykane legalized, and in a butcher’s shop.

This project tells the feeling of this, which is lost in the conversion of circus freaks, first in documentary theater, and then to the objects of art. After all, art is engaged, and the project on the same topic. The only thought that with the help of his “human zoo” broadcasts Bailey, that the Holocaust, the American-baiting “color”, racial policies of the Nazis were not the novelties of the XX century: their invention was preceded by hundreds of years of promoting inequality and other extermination.

Nikita Mikhalkov acted as weary magician – New News

The new film by Russian director most odious no worse and no better than those that are removed after the “Oscars” produced for the first series of “Burnt by the Sun.” It also has spectacular pieces like a pair of three scenes with colorful performers of the second plan, but the impression of the whole characteristic of the author spoils paralogous and general banality of artistic thought. First of all, the building itself is discouraging picture, trivial and monotone punctuate the action in 1920 with flashbacks that mimic the memories of the protagonist, relating to 1907. And mimic uncomfortable: try, for example, to explain how such an association in memory of captive white lieutenant, asked: “How did all this (the defeat and death of the old White Russia) happened?” – Refers to a sudden, fleeting and not spiritual thrust, swept a man with a woman in comely day thirteen years ago, and very succinctly described Bunin. Day in which the filmmakers have not noticed absolutely nothing specifically inherent to the last year of the first Russian revolution, and almost anything that would not be characteristic of Russia for twenty and one hundred and twenty years before him. Careless clerk, forgotten in time to hit the church bell; avaricious priests; Hotel maids and assigns forgotten things and do not bring the change lackeys lived in the XVIII century, but could not remember the hero because of his everyday life, as Darwin’s ideas, who walked in Russia since the early 60-ies of the XIX century, still a little hurt people stationary consciousness which easily coexist mutually exclusive ideas. Another thing is that the Darwinian theory clatter of Nikita Mikhalkov, who ought to pretend that every power of God, and who would not like the idea that selfish or unselfish revered them rulers, as despicable smerdy also had a monkey ancestor, also common to the higher and lower. From what is the idea clear the stump, just one step away from the hated revolutions, do not recognize the differences between God’s anointed by mere mortals, and encroaching on the divine power of the first. Now, if the hero told the kid that Darwin heretic and devil seducing commoners harmful ideas, it is not the boy grew up in a deceptively good security officer, giving the go-ahead last sinking of a barge with the prisoners, among whom is the recognized his old acquaintance and kind. And if anyone thinks that this retelling maliciously exaggerate the thinking of the author, let him read his numerous besogonskie razmyshlizmy.

The second idea, just close the souls of the main creator of “Sunstroke” and his faithful follower in the person of the Minister of Culture, gives white captain (small, but, as always, memorable role Vitaly Kishchenko), which, contrary to the straightness of character reminds his comrades in the camp that promises good notorious liars worthless and Blindside their statement, was to blame Russian literature, for a hundred years as blacken the blessed homeland. And (while still unthinkable in the mouth of this character, but forcibly invested in them by the author of the film considerations, from whom the late author of “Cursed Days” Ivan Bunin turning in his grave), thus causing the people seditious thoughts about a revolutionary change in those who use them (the fatherland and people) of the Rules. Still, after all the art of Nikita Sergeyevich remain each subsequent court chairman, president or monarch is just the ability to convince of it, that there is no alternative and will not be until at least as long as the Lord does not call for one of them to him.

Now about visual signals. If you believe Mikhalkov, the initiative came from the liquidation of prisoners Rosalia Zemlyachki, but there is no reason to trust these things with any historical or artistic point of view. Nobody disputes the fact that it is responsible for the wild and senseless slaughter of 1920, but, according to some historians reasonably be expected, the action was horrible, as things like that in Soviet Russia, secretly agreed with the central Bolshevik power, that is to say with Trotsky and Lenin, or have been committed with the tacit connivance of these, and gave the command to direct executors appointed chairman of the center of the Crimean Revolutionary Committee Bela Kun, burning with desire for revenge “suckers” for the failure of his attempts to arrange a proletarian revolution in Hungary. However, in the film-kun (you can guess why) is hidden in the shadow of his party tovarki by Miriam Sehon – actor’s bright, but not very convincing, as often happens in the movies of our great director, willingly neglects the internal validity for external brightness. Filled with revolutionary romanticism girls (Mikhalkovskaya Zemlyachka fifteen years younger than the real, and the screen-kun as much older than its inverse image) do not command the massacres and not thinking about what they penetrated intolerance calls for freedom, equality and brotherhood can lead to such consequences. But imagine izuverkoy passionate girl much piquant than a cold-blooded young doctrinaire or adult dogmatichku and absurdities Nikita Sergeyevich never troubled. Want him to dashing Cossack Cossack captain with forelock remembered Montaigne and downed Darwin confused boy became kromeshnikom polite, and even returned to the former lieutenant once forgotten those pocket watches and finally waved his hand – and we will watch, and will be the final call. And there is nothing to do with Mikhalkov that he forty years ago with far greater dexterity convince gullible public in white red and black white, putting symbolically melodramatic phrase, “You beast, gentlemen” in the mouth tender, like a nightingale, love slave.

And how on earth is not seen in the ship’s magician of “Sunstroke” unintentional self-parody of the author, a substitute for the art of cinema and their artistic abilities with manipulating the viewer’s attention? How not to notice the transition claiming the depth of the film at the camp, and simply – in the unconscious kitsch if culmination love interest – the sublime, according to the author, the merger lieutenant with hardly a familiar fellow traveler rather than the ubiquitous nauseam flying veil as illustrated in the forehead secretions of the sweat glands and back-(begs the “dissolute”) steamship forth motions of the pistons, and crowned with bawdy (or not say) drop from a bent crane? Right, it is appropriate vulgar allusions would be as trivial, but at least honest porn …

What do we have in the bottom line? If you use the name of a brilliant short film Michael Mestetsky (one of the writers of “Legends of the number 17″) – is meaningless tightened retrospective story about the “minor detail random episode” of the lives of two characters as small or as sarcastically put it in his blog feysbuchnom one sarcastic lady, ” adventure flying scarf. ” And more interesting, but as the surface reconstruction of historical events. Enough for “the great film about a great tragedy,” as no longer dared to call his creation the author pripechatat stupidest advertising slogan “Anticipation.” So nothing Mikhalkov is preparing for the fact that his next creation will not understand: the trouble is that to adequately understand and appreciate.

“We do not have his Wall Street” – BBC

Chapter Roskino Catherine Mtsituridze told “Gazeta.ru” headed for its Media Forum, to complete its work in St. Petersburg, as well as the basics of kinopolitiki and kinoekonomiki that will develop the domestic entertainment industry.

In St. Petersburg showing of the film “Serena” with Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper starring completed International Media Forum. Its president, head Roskino Catherine Mtsituridze told “Gazeta.ru” on the event and introduced by them to innovation, as well as about what media forum differs from the festival and why is it needed a modern city and the entertainment industry.

– Why is your event called the media forum and not a film festival?

– This is due, primarily, to the spread of the Internet, that the Internet today is not just changing the field of communication, but in Essentially, brings new meanings. He shifts the focus to the beloved power vertical to horizontal, and this is a trend. Vertical – it’s such a monarchical structure. As an added bonus for the country’s interesting,

but the whole world vertical structures give way to the horizontal, what is the great merit of the Internet. This also applies to politics, and social relations, and the entertainment industry, we are talking about.

Such giants as Steven Spielberg or George Lucas, announced today that the movie died, on the road no. And Jeffrey Katzenberg, head of DreamWorks, also lamented last year’s Cannes Film Market on – say, all is lost. But that’s not what killed the movie (this is, of course, not the case), and that

money out of the system by which they earned their earlier , go to another system and someone is not able to grasp the new system by the tail, because there live completely different people.

And these new people did not come then, to rake up the money, – they came up with ideas. That does not prevent them from monetizirovat their brilliant ideas into millions of dollars.

– That is the media forum – it’s about and for these people?

– Including and about our members such as Ben Hu of Circa News or Lance Veyler from Columbia University, and Andy Green of Distrify, or our Michael Tabunov founder Coub. They are building a new reality, which also allows you to earn money, but not vice versa.

As well as his time in the same Spielberg, Scorsese, Lucas and their friends did not come In order to cash in, but in order to create something new, and creating their masterpieces, created a new Hollywood.

When creating a new site, we want to be at the forefront. Why repeat something that has already been acquired and reputation? When I received an offer from the Government of St. Petersburg, the main condition for joining the team Roskino on this project I have put our full independence in the formation of the new format.

– and the city government agreed?

– It was their goal. I was invited to do something new, but I was still very surprised when they said, “Yes, we are all like – work.” As the Governor of St. Petersburg Georgy Poltavchenko headed the board of trustees of the media forum, urban services were configured to our project friendly.

– We now return to the horizontal structure of today festivals have become an alternative medium of film distribution. This is also about you?

– We want to make our marketplace has evolved in this direction. Plus, we pay much attention to the new media. On the “Startup Alley”, curated by my assistant on the magazine Variety Denis Ruzaev, participants came from all over the world, and I am glad that they have started on the forum to develop together some new rules of communication with colleagues from the world of film and television.

This is necessary to establish communication. You need to and Yota, and Rambler, and “Amediateka” and Coub, and many other sites that are presented at media forum, established contact with the young Russian distributors.

It is necessary to open the way for their films because in the theatrical release their big no chance.
– With small volumes at the box office, few people want to work?.

– In general, yes. But there are exceptions. See, Minister of Culture Vladimir Medina recommend cinemas on a thousand copies of “Leviathan” to release … I, frankly, shocked. First, just a couple of months ago when we were in Cannes, I read it a skeptical review of the movie …

– I think I saw his face after the show.

– … and suddenly this change of poles. No, it is, of course, progressively, but why then is a thousand, and not four, or, for example, two thousand? Because it is a round number? And the more it will help Yuri Bykov, Boris Khlebnikov and Valeria Gai Germanicus with family their finest films, if it’s just a one-off story? Or is the system,

and now for the quality of Russian cinema will be developed such an algorithm in getting rolling, that the minister criticizes first, and then hit a car? It would be great.

If it is a clandestine operation to become a favorite minister.

– I understand that the money in the budget of the Ministry of Culture Media Forum not?

– There could not have been because we did not go to the Ministry of Culture – it was originally bid Petersburg authorities.

If we turned to the Ministry of Culture, we would have immediately had a lot of problems: what for the movies, and who is coming, and why, and what goals, and show your passport, and a lamp in his face to shine, and the orientation of their kind, and the mat is there, Smoking in the frame?

We would not stand a.

– That is the principle of this – not to ask for money, so you do not make compromises?

– From time to time we get the money from the Ministry of Culture: in the end, it’s not their personal funds, as allocated by the state, ie the taxpayers, on the creation and promotion of culture. For example, this year they responded once – to allocate 5 million rubles. the Russian pavilion at Cannes (total budget of more than 20 million rubles.), where we spent 12 events, presentations, demonstrations, “round tables”, hosted a reception in honor of the 90th anniversary of Roskino. We congratulate all of the directors of festivals, markets, Thierry Fremaux, Jerome Paillard, director of the Venice and Toronto festivals. Was Tom Bernard, the head of Sony Pictures Classic, the coolest distributor in the world of independent film. It just rolls “Leviathan” in the United States.

– On Media Forum gave the city of 40 million rubles., But that’s clearly not the entire budget.

– Yes city ​​we allocated 40 million, and now our budget, including the sponsor’s contribution is 140 million rubles., and that’s not the final figures. Add members, shows, movies, series. Forum adopted a large number of guests – 2700 participants from 57 countries. Well, that could get serious discounts at hotels that campaign in the city received nearly free. At the same time we bought a lot of advertising in newspapers and magazines, from the “Kommersant” to “Dogs” – all posted. Rambler, again, as a partner has been a great support. Thanks for that Alexander Mamut.

– Maybe can and should be entirely without the state are learning to?

– The state should assist in shaping the environment. And we have the whole industry must work together to build this environment. With regard to the promotion of national culture, there is no State has also failed. I think that the law of the culture, which is produced with the participation of the president’s administration team Vladimir Tolstoy, will eventually move in the right direction. By the way, thanks again synergy industry and support the position of the leading figures of cinema and television, and their appeal to the president, the administration assists us to avoid privatization: a year ago, the Ministry of Culture Roskino included in the privatization plan – we have a building in the center of Moscow …

– In Moscow, love central dilapidated buildings Behold around SRI film art now the clouds thickened …

– Of course, the same can then sell to someone and officials immediately becomes easier to live with. But the fact that I was invited to revive this institution, and I do it. I would have no difficulty to find friends among business investors – so that after privatization, we would have stayed there. But it would not be fair: this structure since 1924, promotes the national cinema.

I said, “I do not want to I ended the story of the company founded by Academician Lunacharsky.” While I was there, and the state Roskino will not work on slogans, but in fact the organization.

For the promotion of Russian culture should be the state. Priori.

– That is, the state should invest in cultural initiatives, but not to go, for example, with the ideological tools of law enforcement?

– The state represented by institutions, responsible for culture, should lobby for the interests of the national media industry. On the other hand (again, to the question of bureaucracy), the complexity of stimulating industry to look for alternative development opportunities. Appears consolidation.

– And all such timid steel such internal controls established that careless word utter fear repudiate the policy.

– We For example, the political program of Mikhail Trofimenkova zaverstali to sanctions and did not change anything. We cooked it since February. In other programs, too short sharp pictures. In my opinion,

everything necessary to speak, because the forbidden words and themes create around themselves the exclusion zone.

And we, on the contrary, we want to defrost the exclusion zone, to pronounce the thorny issues and to reduce the bridges.

– make friends all, what else?

– create a more market, with time will help us become more self-reliant. Transmedia market, as you know, and he fully met our expectations. Participants of the sections of film, television and new media a few days together worked out the rules and scheduled joint plans.

We have established a nominal campus Alexander Sokurov, which we call “K.L.A .With. “-” Alexander Sokurov’s film lab. ” Hundred people from across the country receive invaluable advice from the master and his colleagues for a week, watch movies, learn a new language.

This is the formation of a new cultural environment. And at the end of the forum, we are not going to throw these guys. Alexander will track the most talented of them. If he supports the idea, next year we will declare the campus international colleagues from “Tribeca” (a festival in New York, founded by Robert De Niro. – “Times”) are ready for such cooperation.

Wish section acting auditions, which fell due to the cancellation by the British Year of Russian culture; I think this is short-sighted on their part, to be honest.

Not only is their criticize us. The more that the year is almost over – why? We decided that as soon as the time will pass, will settle all the passion, we will hold the event – as an echo of the media forum.

– A not too much in the forum is packed, it’s not confusing?

– Watching someone. Feedback from participants in all sections say that everything happens in a timely manner.

We are creating a new place of power in the entertainment industry at a time when the Russian market a movie is considered one of the most promising the world, and Russian television, for example, Konstantin Ernst, gaining recognition of the international community.

Places of power are constantly changing. The economy moved into recession and European markets has become more difficult – and in Berlin and Budapest and Barcelona. Everywhere except Cannes, where everything is always perfect. We have five years on the market in Berlin, this year the participants were 30 percent less than last year. In Los Angeles in the American film market by 20 percent fewer participants due to problems in the economy of Spain, Italy, Eastern European countries, the Middle East. Director of the Cannes Film Market Jerome Paillard entered the Board of Trustees of St. Petersburg Media Forum, and it is the most obvious proof that the potential of our activities, as well as in the whole of the Russian media industry is huge.

– How about combining within a single market of film, television and the Internet? Many giants of cinema skeptical internet.

– But at the same time, they began to buy.

Disney acquired Maker Studios (which has grown into Youtube company to produce and disseminate online -video – “Times»), Warner Bros is in talks – they all want to re-buy a place on the Internet.

But this is the last cars. And who had the first – they are already at the forefront. At Fox, for example, is one of the coolest sites – Hulu. And we have a great partnership with them for distribution – we have two contracts done with them, they are to us, too, came to Peter. See how things work in the industry: the part of the people who worked in the Hulu and helped us to make this deal, left there because there completely changed management.

It seems as -That billion earned by the company, the management Fox seemed good enough result.

And they went Vimeo, growing company with an excellent reputation, and now they offer us on Vimeo better conditions for the distribution of Russian films, because we already have for reliable partners for Hulu. And they also come as a team.

– And we have it all in the near future can earn? That “Amediateka” not without difficulty instilling a culture of legal Russian audience watching popular TV series. But we are talking about learning how to sell their too?

– And “Amediateke” very difficult, because you have to withstand serious competition with the pirates. But at the same time do not want to run into strong torrents.

Question torrents and websites – it is also a question of freedom of the Internet, it’s important.

Do not throw out the water and the baby.

– Run for torrent sites and pointless – it is necessary to offer a convenient alternative.

– Convenient alternative – penalize users counted on our large and very representative conference on this topic. MPAA vice president Michael Robinson proposed to create more loyal to the conditions for the development of legal resources. In my opinion, it’s better than fine consumer or close the search engines. In general, subscribe to the “Amediateku” for a year worth some hundred rubles – can afford. It’s just a culture of access to information, to the product.

– Then again there is the issue of borders: let’s popular series we legally and at a reasonable price will be shown, but films from film expert Boris absurd programs where to take?

– It is necessary to develop alternative sites – so does the festival “Tribeca.” We want the next year to build a cross-platform platform with them, because “Tribeca” – is one of the coolest institutions, which we want to be equal, along with festivals in Toronto and “Sundance” … Like-built “Tribeca” system: they work all year round, has its own distribution system, which covers the Internet and movie theaters – they do not quit films after the festival.

– Experience “Sundance” is also impressive.

– There is strong funding. We considered the option to invite them as soorganizatotorov media market: come to a team of 12 people to put on the market 1000 (and now we have more than 2700 members), they asked for $ 3.5 million. When they told their demands for fees, we wiped the tears. It’s a festival of independent cinema that many misleading. This is a great mechanism, a powerful industry that works and earns – not without the help of private foundations and cultural initiatives.

– But there are options for systems in which the state supports?

– In France, a perfect system: fund budget CNC, which is financed by the French cinema, made up of contributions from the theatrical release and TV shows. There is, of course, more and more thought out. After that, everything that goes on the development of French cinema and media infrastructure. They are financing part of the Cannes Film Festival and is absolutely independent from politics. It does not matter who the president of the country, it is important who the president of the Cannes Film Festival and he 30 years old in his place. For me, the Cannes, the French model of support media industry – this is standard. The American difficult for us, because there is an independent studio and Wall Street, but we do not have Wall Street.

– A film industry we have around which to gather structure?

– There are people who are able to break through barriers and unite people around her. Fyodor Bondarchuk, for example, and is friends with the state, and at the box office earning, and will make a film with Warner Bros. in America, and helps the young, supporting debuts, and his studio is developing.

And there are cases where money is allocated to the production of films, even the names of which no one shall see later. But there are two or three films, which are then set up on the board as “Legend №17» or “Stalingrad».

But they forget to mention that the same “Legend №17» shot not because the Ministry of Culture and Cinema Fund gave money, but because Leonid Vereshchagin and his entire team for five years invested in the project of enormous efforts and all grow together.
